I want to help you grow.
From improving your English to polishing your academic and nonfiction writing, I empower writers.
Improve your writing skills. Clients use these sessions to talk through their writing process, develop their ideas, or improve their academic English skills in preparation for graduate school.
Copyediting and proofreading for reports, white pages, educational materials, and documentation for educational agencies and institutions. I work with clients to clean up their drafts, improve readability, or double-check their final products. I specialize in nonfiction materials related to K–12 education.
The Working Writers Cohort is based on research and writing group best practices and is designed as an academic writing group for writers whose family and life obligations get in the way of writing. Here, you will find dedicated time to write each week, a supportive and encouraging writing cohort, access to exclusive writing tips, and much more!
I taught middle school English for six years before I quit to pursue my love of language in a different manner. While I was teaching, I worked with advanced thinkers, imaginative creators, emerging speakers, and struggling writers. My favorite thing was to work with the individuals and help them with exactly what they needed.
When I started editing, I reached back to my college days working in a university writing center, copyediting the school newspaper, and diving into my grammar and linguistics courses. I advanced my editing ability with an Art of Proofreading certification. Now, I combine those skills with my passion for seeing the writer as a person. I know your work is important to you, and I want to help you make your writing come to life–whether through advancing your academic English abilities, drafting your dissertation, polishing your formatting for your style guide, or checking for inconsistencies in your fiction piece, my focus is on you as the writer.
I recently completed my PhD in Rhetoric, and I consider myself a scholar of political rhetoric and popular culture. While in graduate school, I taught several communication courses and worked at a University Speaking Center and a University Writing Center. A self-proclaimed grammar nerd (a few of my favorite podcasts cover grammatical and linguistic topics!), I enjoy the editing and revising process. My favorite part of the writing process, though, is working with students and clients on organization, clarifying ideas, and enhancing argumentation. As your editor/consultant, I aim to provide you with the tools and resources to enrich your own writing. I benefited greatly from the writers and scholars who guided my own writing process, and I am delighted by my personal growth as a writer. I am now honored to provide similar guidance to others who are refining their own pieces.
